Scarlett Johansson claims she is good at helping people with ''horrible'' skin conditions because she herself is prone to ''weird'' rashes.
Scarlett Johansson gets ''weird'' rashes.
The 'Hitchcock' actress initially wanted to train as a dermatologist and loves helping people with skin conditions, something she feels she can relate to, as she suffers skin complaints herself.
She said: ''I've had every problem, I always get these weird things [rashes]. At least I know how to cure them.
''When you help someone to heal their skin it gives them a new lease of life. Have you ever met someone with a horrible skin condition? I'm good with that.''
The 28-year-old beauty - who was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds - added she gets a lot of her insider knowledge on keeping skin healthy from watching documentaries about it.
She told the February edition of Britain's Elle magazine: ''I'm pretty good at diagnosing other people. Fungal issues are pretty obvious. It usually an infection combined with poor hygiene.
''It comes from watching a lot of medial programmes. Real medical programmes, like documentaries.''
